Everyone had their doubts about the funny little rear engined cars that John Cooper entered into F1 alongside the traditional front engined cars, but look where that ended up ... people are always reluctant to adapt to a new form factor or engineering methodology (Carbon Fibre chassis were originally written off as fragile and dangerous) but sometimes these oddball technologies become an epoch-changing development.
I wish them all the best at Le Mans, but I doubt they'll live up to my hopes.

I'm with you... if the rear weight + rear downforce + rear brake bias were beneficial why don't people make "rectangular" cars with the same bias'????!!!
What would be really annoying is if the AcO bias the rules to give this thing a helping hand... its not like they haven't done that in the past.... [cough] diesels [cough]....
